Did You Know?

Trivia

In The Jungle Book (1967), King Louie (who was created by Walt Disney and his people and not by Rudyard Kipling.) was an orangutan. In this film, he's a Gigantopithecus, an ancestor of the orangutan whose range is believed to have included parts of India. This change in species was made to make the film more fantastic, since it would be a good way to represent him as King of the Monkeys and to show that orangutans are not native to India. See more »

Goofs

After Mowgli arrives at King Louie's lair, Mowgli has new bloodied wounds on his back and chest, not to mention the bee stings. When Mowgli escapes, he runs down the stone steps, and not one wound is seen on the front of him. Later, as King Louie looks for him, Mowgli's wounds reappear. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bagheera: Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.

Crazy Credits

The Disney logo has a hand-drawn design and resembles the 1960s Disney logo, to homage The Jungle Book (1967)'s era. Once it appears, it zooms away into the jungle. See more »

Wow this is so excellent!.
29 April 2016 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Raised by a family of wolves since birth, Mowgli (Neel Sethi) must leave the only home he's ever known when the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) unleashes his mighty roar. Guided by a no-nonsense panther (Ben Kingsley) and a free-spirited bear (Bill Murray), the young boy meets an array of jungle animals, including a slithery python and a smooth-talking ape. Along the way, Mowgli learns valuable life lessons as his epic journey of self-discovery leads to fun and adventure.

Disney Picture is the best company in making top and number 1 family movies.

Everything is excellent about this movie.

I guarantee you this top movie will win too many Oscars.
